Was not that impressed with the Laservue and bigger seems like it will be worse but we shall see. The Sharp for 3k looked very livable and will make a nice gift one day
. It also fits in my cabinet/frame nicely by just lifting it up to the height of the Q. Wonder if I should get an extended warranty this time?
The reports I have seen say that a competent callibration by UMR makes a world of difference on the Laservue, so one cannot necessarily judge by what one sees in a store, unfortunately. Apparently, the laservue is improved much more than other types of sets by a callibrator with the proper equipment AND TALENT.
I agree with not going off the deep end on spending--too much is changing and getting better--and wait and see is the better course with so much change. I rationalized buying the Q by saying: "better to enjoy it now, than wait for the next best thing"..Bad thought at the Q's price point. The XBR 70" was just around the corner at half the price and 90% of the picture.
